Top-notch ex-designer, cotton sateen shirt weight fabric perfect for creating cool, silky cotton garments and so much more. An all over design of fretwork style images, like the beautiful screens in the palace of its namesake, is printed in a subtle darker tone. 


Smoke Alhambra is created from fine smoky grey Turkish cotton yarns, woven in a super smooth sateen weave and printed with a darker blue-grey that showcases the negative space fretwork showing through. Perfect for creating statement separate or stand-alone pieces.


Smoke Alhambra can be made up into a multitude of styles, from seriously stylish dress shirts to semi-relaxed smart casual, think quality shirt, jeans and blazer style. This will go with anything just choose differing types for different occasions! 

Garment Suggestions: 

Smoke Alhambra will make superb classic and retro style shirts, Sew Mark Francis' Brighton Shirt Pattern and Vanessa Mooncie's Book: The Gentleman's Wardrobe also has a similar retro style shirt pattern with cropped sleeves. All of these ex-designer shirting fabrics will of course make the most handsome classic pyjamas with contrasting piped collars, pockets and cuffs. The Kalle Shirt by Close Core Patterns will make up perfectly in this quality fabric an invaluable piece for easy outfits. Team with your favourite jeans.

Put this fabulous fabric to use for '50s skater-style fit & flare dresses. Accessorise these stand-alone pieces with contrasting shoes and handbags to create a classic combination. 

Create cool cotton classics like the Sew Different - Camomile Kaftan or Darjeeling Frock perfect for the summer holiday season. Shirt-dresses, tunics and play/jumpsuits are also excellent choices to make from this cool cotton classic.
